    Anyone know if they're ever going to make the Cyclone font available for all of us "freelance designers" to use? I'd really hate to have to trace the entire alphabet from the identity pdf in Illustrator...

    If it's anything like the official university fonts, it will only be available with a limited license, meaning you have to pay to use it or be contracted by university to use it. And I'm pretty sure that the athletics branding trademarks are even more uptight about their usage.

    I think you can acquire both the logo and fonts by request. Someone I know has his own embroidering machine and was able to use them as long as he was not selling what he did. He'd make gifts and custom things like seat covers and such for his RV too. He was told as long as he didn't charge and make a profit from it he was allowed to use them.

    I don't know the whole story about who he talked to and such but he had the old logo and colors he could download into his software for this machine and had ran it by someone at ISU before he started using them.

    If I'm not mistaken, in the past you could buy a CD at the University Book Store that had all the logos, font, etc. on it. Hopefully, they'll do this for the new logos/Cyclone font as well.

    This is both the University and old athletic logos/marks for $19.99. We may see the new athletic marks/fonts soon.

    Seriously? I kind of figured that one out nearly three years ago now - which was why I originally created the thread in the first place... :rolleyes:
